Meuris, Jean Maurice (1961) Design of a granular pressure cell to be used in soils. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-05052006-102954
In preliminary experimentation, a granular pressure cell was built and tested. From the results obtained, an improved method for the production of granular pressure cells was developed and a second pressure cell was built in order to determine the behavior of granular pressure cells, as designed, under variable external temperature conditions.
A third pressure cell was built for laboratory testing. A calibration curve was established and the pressure cell was used satisfactorily in simple laboratory testing.
Attempts were made to improve the constitution of granular pressure cells as used in the aforementioned tests. These attempts lead to suggestions intended to help in eventual further improvement of the granular pressure cells built and described in the following pages.
